It can become very easy to feel alone in these dark times. We are restricted to our homes and only allowed to leave if it is critical. I never imagined 2020 to look like this! This is defiantly not how I imagined my year going. I could look at it and sulk around in depression because I lost my job and life how I knew it. But what good would complaining do or worrying about what the future is going to look like. It is out of my control so I shouldn’t let it make my life in the present miserable.

I have been able to look and see the blessings that have come from this broken time. We need to look at what we can gain from this and not look to what we have lost. For me with all my free time I can focus on improving my music and become better at what I truly love to do. What have you been wanting to do but have never had the time to do? Now is your chance to make your dreams happen. It is amazing what good can come from bad situations with the right attitude. I hope you will join me in making the best of this life we are going to be living, at least for the next few weeks.

Another positive I have seen through this pandemic is how it has helped in building up the church. Churches are no longer able to meet in person, but that doesn’t matter. God has blessed our generation with the means of communicating without physical contact. This proves that the church was never about the building but the family that meets within its walls. I think through this more people have been exposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ because churches have been forced to gain a larger online presence. People who would never chose to walk into a church building can easily stumble across a church service that is being live streamed and see the hope we have in Christ.

I hope this has been an encouragement to you. Help spread the hope and peace we have and if you know someone who needs to hear this share it with them! Let’s spread joy and peace this week instead of fear and negativity. I know this won’t be easy but together we can be a light to this dark world. I am going to try to post these as an encouragement to you weekly so be sure to signup for my mailing list to not miss when I make a new post Have an amazing week!
